Attracted to my UV light and placed on leaf for this photograph. What a privilege to have seen two specimens of this unusual species! Adds April for Texas. Maury Heiman once told me that the life history was unknown and that it may not have an emergence each year. Looking at our Texas records, I would guess that it may have a 2 year gestation cycle. (not the right terminology for an entomologist!)
